I want to buy a hot cup of coffee on a freezing Winter

Adding taxes to items at the store/grocery, calculating tips at a restaurant,

5. The “power of technology” when I skype with my family back home
6. The meaning of choice when at an American grocery store! There’s 30+ types of bread alone!
7. The meaning of “destiny” – when I hear a beautiful voice singing but on the subway
8. That it’s always too hot or too rainy or too snowy…no matter which part of
the world you’re in.
